    I will tell you I resent the repeated statements that people who oppose the NSA and related programs are stupid naifs (or now, racists of one form or another or hypocritically privileged to boot).  Believe me, when your uncles and grandfather and father have been the victims of such activities by totalitarian regimes, you are being neither because as they say, you understand this shit is real.  This is not subject to some strained false equivalency to some other period of history or events that bears only a passing similarity only drawn for rhetorical purposes.  Frankly, I'm getting to the point where the next person to level such charges of privilege or cluelessness is going to be getting called to the mat for their bullshit by me for being stupid, insensitive, and frankly pretty damned privileged themselves.

    Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion. An activist seeks to change opinion.
